HEFEI, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- A bank official who killed a woman while driving drunk has been detained in central China's Anhui Province, according to local police.

Yin Xiangyu, the deputy head of a branch of China Construction Bank in the city of Mingguang, is being held by the public security bureau of Fengyang County, according to Huang Min, a local traffic police officer.

Yin, driving a sedan owned by the bank, hit a 73-year-old woman riding an electric bike around 5 p.m. Wednesday in Fengyang County's township of Hongxin, Huang said, adding that the woman died en route to the hospital.

A blood test indicated that Yin had 26 milligrams of alcohol for every 100 milliliters of blood in his system, 6 milligrams higher than the limit specified by Chinese law.

Police are working to determine whether Yin fled the site after hitting the woman, as it was discovered that he failed to stop his car immediately after the accident occurred. Enditem
